Italian Almond and raisin cookies

Here is the Almond and raisin cookies. If you like Italian cookies, try this fantastic recipe!!


  • 170gr (0.75cup – 6oz) flour
  • 220gr (0.8 – 7oz) almonds flour
  • 150gr (0.6cup – 5oz) sugar
  • 160gr (0.7cup – 5.6oz) butter
  • 100gr (0.4cup – 3.5oz) raisins
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • icing sugar


  1. First of all put raisins in warm water to soften, then squeeze them and dry them with a cloth.
  2. Mix together both flours, sugar and salt, then add eggs, cold butter and finally raisins. Stir well.
  3. Place the dough in a polythene bag and leave it in the fridge for 1 hour to rest.
  4. For the cooking: now it’s up to you, you can choose between crunchy or soft cookies (I still can’t decide which one I prefer!).
  5. For soft ones, form little balls (big as a nut) and place them on a baking sheet, then bake at 160°C (310F) for 10-11 minutes (take out when they start colouring on the edges). For crunchy ones, after formed little balls press them lightly and bake at 160°C (310F) for 15-17 minutes (the should be a nice brown colour).
  6. Sprinkle them with icing sugar when still hot.
